Hi everyone! My name is Ilina Prentoska and I am a first-year at Stevens Institute of Technology studying Chemical Engineering. I moved to the U.S. from Macedonia in 2013 and graduated from Garfield High School in 2018. I chose Chemical Engineering because I love chemistry, especially learning about atomic interactions and orbitals, and I genuinely enjoy doing math. On campus, I’m involved in the American Chemical Society (ACS), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and I am secretary of American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
During my free time, I like to read young adult novels and hang out with my friends. Some of my favorite authors are Cassandra Clare, Alexandra Bracken, and Melissa Meyer. I always listen to music when I do homework, some of which are from Khalid, Russ, Post Malone, Kodak Black, Billie Eilish, Drake… I also love watching Netflix; my favorite shows are Criminal Minds, Black Mirror, and Breaking Bad. I usually stay up late, even if I finish my homework early, just to look up interesting facts and end up going off on a tangent.
